The Great Pumpkin Festival...

...this afternoon, I took AR to her first Great Pumpkin Festival at Morning Star Church. I'd invited some other bloggers/Twitter girls last weekend but since AR was under the weather the past couple days, I wasn't sure we'd go. She was in a good mood so I thought we'd go check it out. I'm glad we did because it was really fun! Would have been more fun had Matt gone with us but it's deer season.
Everything was dogs, pumpkin bread, caramel & apples, kettle corn, a pumpkin (that's all we did) plus hayrides, train rides, inflatables, games, etc...(maybe in a couple years). They even had a chili cookoff and did I mention EVEYTHING was free?
The only downside is that I think AR might be allergic to hay or have hay fever (not really sure what's the difference if there is one). She was kind of tired while there which it was getting close to her naptime so I didn't think anything about it. She was fine when I put her in the car but then a few minutes down the road she started fussing and rubbing her eyes...the whole way home. When we got home, her eyes were red but once I held her, she was smiling and happy. Sure she might have just been tired but normally she falls asleep in the car if that's the problem. I'll have to watch it and ask the doctor.
Overall though, it was a good time and we'll definitely go back next year! Here's AR and I:

Next year you all should join us!
